What is Sustrans? - 'We are a leading charity enabling people to choose healthier, cleaner and cheaper journeys by helping people to travel by foot, bike or public transport for more of the journeys we make every day. Sustrans makes smarter travel choices possible, desirable and inevitable. It`s time we all began making smarter travel choices.'
Here at HJS we work alongside 'Bikeit', allowing children to take part in various activities to give them the skills and confidence they need to travel using their bikes and scooters.
HJS was 20th out of 46 schools in the West Midlands - Fantastic result!
The class with the most journeys on a bike or scooter was Class 9 with over 200 journeys during Big Pedal.
On the 21st March we held a bling your bike competition set to the theme of South America. We had many great entry's with even more creative ways to bling up your bike!
